Poached Pears from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast

We ask our innkeepers to submit their favorite recipes and are  pleased to see that once again, we are all about keeping it local and fresh. Did you know that 84% of the nation’s pears are grown in Oregon and Washington? This Poached Pear Delight comes to you from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast.

Poached Pears from Chehalem Ridge Bed and Breakfast

2 Large Pears
1/2 Cup Orange Juice
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 cup Vanilla Yogurt
2 Tbsp Hazelnut Granola


  1. Mix orange juice, brown sugar and cinnamon in a small pot and heat over medium heat.
  2. Peel pears and cut in half lengthwise.  Scoop out the core with a melon baller and cut out the upper and lower stem areas with a knife.  Place pear halves, cut side down, in orange juice liquid.
  3. Poach pears, with the liquid barely bubbling, for 4 to 8 minutes.  With a slotted spoon, turn pears and poach for another 4 to 8 minutes, until the pears are softened.  Really ripe pears take less time while harder pears will take longer.
  4. Serve 1 pear half per person with a dollop of vanilla yogurt and a sprinkling of Hazelnut Granola in the hollow of each pear half.
  5. Pro tip: Poached pears wait for no diner.  Well, they can wait, but be sure to leave them in the liquid with the heat off.  After about 10 minutes out of the liquid, they will turn a bit brown and not in the pretty caramelizing way.
